I purchased the car from Poway Toyota
last September 2003, which makes this
car just 7 months old. I have already
installed Strut Tower Braces on the
front upper and lower, and on the rear,
Titanium Shifters, race pedals, and an
Injen Short Ram Air Intake which added
15 more horses on my stock 143 horses.
The car is beautifully designed, and I
planned to keep it that way except
probably for a 19'AXIS Hagen wheels on
a Pirelli PZero Tires and APR wide-body
kit. And yes, I also replaced that ugly
stock FM Antenna that Toyota had on all
Celicas with a rubber mounter high-flex
high performance racing antenna.
The dashoboard design is excellent, I
like the headlights and the HID
features, and I like the aerodynamic
styling. I have driven the car at a
135MPH speed against a 2002 Lexus GS300
and within a heartbeat, the Lexus was
all covered with dust on from my rear.
I love High-Performance intakes, I just
hope Toyota comes up with TRD wide tube
intakes to suck more air, and have
18'rims on the action package. The
celica looks cool without that annoying
